Schema Description


By default, local element declarations belong to this schema's target namespace.

By default, local attribute declarations have no namespace.

      Xdoc 2.0 XML Schema.

      This is based on: Extensible HTML version 1.0 Transitional XML Schema

      For further information, see:
    ================ Character mnemonic entities =========================

    XHTML entity sets are identified by the PUBLIC and SYSTEM identifiers:

    PUBLIC "-//W3C//ENTITIES Latin 1 for XHTML//EN"
    SYSTEM ""

    PUBLIC "-//W3C//ENTITIES Special for XHTML//EN"
    SYSTEM ""

    PUBLIC "-//W3C//ENTITIES Symbols for XHTML//EN"
    SYSTEM ""
    ================== Imported Names ====================================
    these are used for image maps
    =================== Generic Attributes ===============================
    =================== Text Elements ====================================
    ================== Block level elements ==============================
    ================== Content models for exclusions =====================

    ======================= Frames =======================================
    =================== Document Body ====================================
    =================== Paragraphs =======================================
    =================== Headings =========================================

    There are six levels of headings from h1 (the most important)
    to h6 (the least important).
    =================== Lists ============================================
    definition lists - dt for term, dd for its definition
    =================== Address ==========================================
    =================== Horizontal Rule ==================================
    =================== Preformatted Text ================================
    =================== Block-like Quotes ================================
    =================== Text alignment ===================================
    =================== Inserted/Deleted Text ============================

    ins/del are allowed in block and inline content, but its
    inappropriate to include block content within an ins element
    occurring in inline content.
    ================== The Anchor Element ================================
    ===================== Inline Elements ================================
    ==================== Object ======================================

    object is used to embed objects as part of HTML pages.
    param elements should precede other content. Parameters
    can also be expressed as attribute/value pairs on the
    object element itself when brevity is desired.
    =================== Java applet ==================================

    One of code or object attributes must be present.
    Place param elements before other content.
    =================== Images ===========================================

    To avoid accessibility problems for people who aren't
    able to see the image, you should provide a text
    description using the alt and longdesc attributes.
    In addition, avoid the use of server-side image maps.
    ================== Client-side image maps ============================

    These can be placed in the same document or grouped in a
    separate document although this isn't yet widely supported
    ================ Forms ===============================================
    ======================= Tables =======================================

    Derived from IETF HTML table standard, see [RFC1942]
    Use thead to duplicate headers when breaking table
    across page boundaries, or for static headers when
    tbody sections are rendered in scrolling panel.

    Use tfoot to duplicate footers when breaking table
    across page boundaries, or for static footers when
    tbody sections are rendered in scrolling panel.

    Use multiple tbody sections when rules are needed
    between groups of table rows.
    th is for headers, td for data and for cells acting as both
